The law requires you to wear protective clothing and does not address shorts vs long pants, both can be argued as safe as well as unsafe

Re: 23 Unit Building


I just find it surprising not looking to get into a debate. I just find it odd especially tying bar and doing concrete work. All the cuts from the tie wire, and concrete burns.

Re: 23 Unit Building


I agree with you, I have never wore shorts on a job site. We are fortunate as no one has reported any cuts or burns on their legs. The worst we ever seem to get that I ever see on our daily reports is 'apply bandaid' as our hands seem to get the brunt of everything.

Concrete burns on hands...I see the new guys get it during training, once they have it once, they learn...and wash their hands anytime after that they happen to touch wet concrete

Re: 23 Unit Building


Shoring frames are coming tommorow!
Columns and walls both look great , and i used the total station and I checked the tops of columns and walls and in the whole building the lines do not vary more then 1/4".. Not too shabby if you ask me. 23 Unit Building-imageuploadedbycontractortalk1437319706.617250.jpg23 Unit Building-imageuploadedbycontractortalk1437319722.025521.jpg23 Unit Building-imageuploadedbycontractortalk1437319741.634529.jpg23 Unit Building-imageuploadedbycontractortalk1437319770.418975.jpg

Re: 23 Unit Building


We really gave a good push last week on the deck . The beam lines are perfect , everything is great . We are about 3/4 done .. So far about 6000 sqft in 5 working days . I was the only guy who had installed these frames before but the crew was quickly up to speed ! Plethora of chamfer strip and rebar is to follow .23 Unit Building-imageuploadedbycontractortalk1438120978.515719.jpg23 Unit Building-imageuploadedbycontractortalk1438120993.791855.jpg23 Unit Building-imageuploadedbycontractortalk1438121007.264425.jpg23 Unit Building-imageuploadedbycontractortalk1438121025.375337.jpg

Re: 23 Unit Building


Pro-shore? Thats our product we sell to Dayton. Curious if it gets used in up North much. Used to be licensed to Aluma and a few other outfits.

Watch your fingers in the post holes, monthly we have someone lose a tip of finger droppin shoring. Seriously. Major problem.

Re: 23 Unit Building


That is one talk we all had, about the pinch points. Everyone is very safety conscious.

I have to say the accuracy we are getting with the total station is unreal. I have a Hilti rep coming in a few days to give me another training session on it, this time dealing with vertical layout and slopes.. percent grades and what not. Then i will be able to use it to its full ability on the x,y,and z axis.

Alot of this stuff is pretty new to me... but putting it from my carpentry books to the form plywood and seeing it work out no problem is really great!

Re: 23 Unit Building


Cost wise is it cheaper to build all your forms rather than renting a form system? Peri and efco and meva all make form systems that will get you production. I was always taught time is money, and labor is more expensive than material. I mean everything looks great I'm just curious about the site built panels

So cool to see this type of a building! Amazing skills you have Nick to be able to layout, form, and pour that...and of course your crew!

We looked at both Peri and what we did, by the time we calc'd everything in we are further ahead with making our own forms. Rental wasn't that cheap, then the crane every time to move them, then for make our own, 3 uses for the form ply and when you put the roof on, 80% will become the roof ply, 60% of the 2x4 will still be long enough (and straight enough) for kickers, rips for the flat roof, etc the small stuff, up to 20% will be used for blocking and backing as needed.

Trust me when I say we sat and ran numbers every which way we could to make sure all this made sense

I think this stuff is great, i still love framing but this is really neat. I have seen it done lots of times on condo jobs but seeing our crew do it and do it well is awesome. I just really need to make sure people are following my marks and not making their own jazz up. Its always a bonus when someone bumps the total station and doesn't tell me so i have to recheck a whole string on points.

Electrician actually mentioned to us today that we were moving quicker then the concrete crew with a crane on his other similar highrise job
